ADVERSARY ARTIFACTS / Re: M40 Single Decal Luftwaffe Helmet

 Everybody I know says the same thing about cell phone cameras. The problem is I hate carrying that thing, its like a tether and my thoughts are that when I am out, I am already busy, so I don't need the calls, texts etc... I am sure that I will break down some day and use it, but for now I am the last land line hold out!   Scott

Scott,

I too have to learn how to take better pictures. Ironically, I have been taking pictures with my cell phone lately and they seem to be better than my Canon that I spent so much money on...

Well, there is always something to learn..

  Just the flash, I really am a terrible photographer and should devote some time to getting better at it... It is Luft grey.  Scott

  Thanks Leigh, you should have seen me when I found it in a box, I nearly fell over as I pulled it out and saw the decal. I am back there again tomorrow (Tuesday) to fetch another load and do more sorting. We basically sorted ourselves to a standstill as we ran out of room! Its like a real life treasure hunt to be sure. I will post more as I get things back to our museum.   Thanks as always!  Scott

Scott,

Once again I am speechless.. The SS helmet is incredible.. On my wish list someday but with the soaring prices I can only dream right now...

I like the police helmet too...

Scott,

Great helmet.. Being from NH, I wish I would have picked this up... Oh well..

Now the paint color in your pictures looks apple green?? Is this just the flash or is this a different color.. Luft blue or grey??

ADVERSARY ARTIFACTS / M35 Quist Luftwaffe Double Decal Helmet Vet Bringback

This helmet came from a 3 war veteran's estate sale. He saw service at the end of WW2 in Germany and he served in Korea and Vietnam. He retired as a Sergeant Major and had some interesting items at his home. I was able to purchase almost 90% of his uniforms and other items but the family wanted to keep several items. This helmet is one of 2 that I picked up. This is in near mint condition with very little wear to the paint and decals..

I will post pictures of the other helmet in another thread after I take more pictures
